Product information


This is the final part of the Agile Finance Transformation Certificate Series, a comprehensive three-part program that provides best practices, expert advice and lessons learned from Fortune 100 leaders.

Prepare for your transformation

Learn why finance is in an ideal position to take a strategic leadership role in organizational transformation — and actions to take for success.

Share insights

Business influence is the business-partnering capability of the finance function that effectively communicates the actionable insights gathered through digital intelligence. An agile finance operating model allows finance to analyze opportunities to mitigate risks, understand and measure intangible value drivers, accelerate time-to-market, and identify opportunities.

Talent counts

Digital technology is changing the way finance operates, creating the need for a more agile, digitally savvy workforce. Learn a recruiting model to build a team of “finance athletes.”

Build people skills

The modern CFO is the strategic adviser to the CEO with a key role in driving business growth. That requires developing the soft skills of critical thinking, communication, and team building.

Understand the culture

To build an agile finance model, you need to understand your current organizational culture and how to prepare that culture to embrace and accelerate change.

Lessons from experience

Oracle finance executives will walk you through how they successfully completed their own digital transformation. Through their lessons and best practices, you’ll get a first-hand account of how to integrate smoothly.

This course provides 4 CPE in Business Management and Organization, 3 CPE in Personnel/Human Resources and 1 CPE in Information Technology

Digital Badge: On completion of each certificate, you will receive a digital badge to share with your online professional network. The badge is also available as a downloadable PDF certificate suitable for printing and framing.
